Anti-Glamour and Burn With Desire

Two exhibits, two very different perspectives.

Anti-GlampuorAnti-Glamour is an exhibition that presents photographic and video portraits by artists boldly addressing issues of female representation. Some ironic, some empowered, this exhibit presents the antidote to the controversial subject of the mainstream media’s view of feminine beauty.

Burn With Desire is an accompanying exhibit that presents a startling opposite: an historic look at ultra glamour through the Hollywood studio system, works by Warhol and Avedon and an extensive collection of Annie Liebowitz’s Vanity Fair covers.

The exhibits run through to April 5 at the Ryerson Image Centre.

This week’s Frandoms are by John Miziolek, president and founder of Reset Branding and Design
